U.S. Supreme Court

Southern Wisconsin Ry. Co. v. City of Madison, 240 U.S. 457 (1916)

Southern Wisconsin Railway Company v. City of Madison

No. 260

Argued March 6, 7, 1916

Decided March 20, 1916

240 U.S. 457

Syllabus

Although the charter of a railway company was held in this case to be a contract, a later ordinance requiring it to pave with asphalt the space between its tracks and one foot on each side was held not to be an impairment of its obligation or a violation of the due process or equal protection provisions of the Fourteenth Amendment.

The state court having found that the pavement between the tracks of a street railway needed repair, and that the pavement originally used was not suitable and was additionally unsuitable when the rest of the street was paved with asphalt, this Court will not declare the state wrong in holding that a provision requiring the railway company to keep the space between the tracks and one foot on each side in proper repair so as not to interfere with travel over the same was broad enough to cover requiring it to be paved with asphalt when the rest of the street was so paved.

156 Wis. 352 affirmed. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
